If the dimensions of the prospective new tyre, like size and rims, aren’t present in your vehicle’s documentation, you cannot fit them until a clearance certificate has been issued. This certificate can come from the vehicle manufacturer, tyre manufacturer or an approved test centre.
To make the process as speedy as possible, it’s a good idea to contact your local tyre retailer with the following information from your vehicle documentation:
- Vehicle manufacturer and model
- Vehicle class
- Initial registration
- Power in kW
- Top speed
- Front and rear axle loads
Once again, do make sure your new tyres are compatible with your vehicle and approved for use within the parameters given above. For your safety and satisfaction, it’s vital to fit your car with approved tyres.
